Kim Stockwood (left) will be there.
So will Ron Hynes and a host of other great Newfoundland songwriters.
If you love a great tune, you'll want to be there as well.
It's the 2011 CBC-MusicNL Songwriters' Circle, this Sunday afternoon at the Delta Hotel in St. John's.
The lineup is spectacular. Along with Kim and Ron, you'll hear Matthew Hornell, Mark Bragg, Megan Warren, Dan Bursey (right), Craig Young, and Andrew James O'Brien.
The show features two sets, with four songwriters in each set. So you get two circles for the price of one.
If you're in the St. John's area, please join us at the Delta. Admission is $20 and the music begins at 2:00.
We'll be recording the music for future broadcast on the Performance Hour, and it will sound a whole lot better if you're part of the show.
Check out the Music Newfoundland and Labrador website for more about the Songwriters' Circle and other events in what promises to be a jam-packed MusicNL Awards Week.Read more »

"...a fresh and invigorating new voice in Newfoundland music." - Patrick Boyle, musician
Wednesday October 5, 2011
Joanna is the latest in a series of young singer-songwriters to emerge from Grand Falls-Winsor.
It was another Grand Falls artist, Matthew Hornell, who convinced Joanna to do her first bar gig when she moved to St. John's. Now she's working on her first album.
This Saturday (October 8) Joanna Barker joins us in the CBC studio to play a few songs and tell us about her early adventures in music.
Also this week, the prolific Ian Foster. The St. John's songwriter talks about his latest album, Evening Light. It's his fifth full-length CD in the last five years.
